Arguing with airports about toothpaste
I'm not quoting the Quran with a vest on
And who the hell's ever made a bomb out of Crest armed
To the teeth
Homie by Shad + Skratch Bastid (Ft. Cadence Weapon)

Playing back to the “based out of a suitcase” line, Shad talks about troubles he’s had at airports over strict carry-on rules and his race. Just because he is black and is carrying fluids in his suitcase, he is immediately assumed to be a Muslim terrorist, blowing up planes with bullet-proof vests on all for the sake of the God Allah and the Quran. However, all Shad is doing is bringing his Crest toothpaste onboard so he can brush his teeth.

If your city isn't on the map gotta make tracks
Like leave, and get love to take back
Homie by Shad + Skratch Bastid (Ft. Cadence Weapon)

If your city doesn’t have the market for you to get exposed, move somewhere that does. A common tactic especially for Canadian artists, you’ll often hear about Canadian artists that move to the US to blow up, then return to their home country and bring back the fame and success with them.
